Rawfully Tempting 'Nilla Fingers

Oh Yeah!!! Very simple to look at, nothing fancy, but chock full of decadent vanilla chewiness and sweet, creamy filling.

I was trying to duplicate "Vienna Fingers" we ate growing up. I won't say they taste exactly like them. Nope, but I have to say I think these taste way BETTER. I'm a chocolate person, but these have such an incredible 'nilla flavor, I found them very addictive!!!!

'Nilla Fingers (Wafers)
1 1/4 cup almonds (soaked overnight and peeled, if possible)
1/4  cup macadamia nuts
1/2  cup water (as needed)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract or 4 drops Medicine Flower Vanilla Extract
1/4 teaspoon lemon zest 
1 teaspoon Lucuma, optional
1/4 cup maple syrup, grade B (or raw honey, not vegan)
1 Tbsp  ground flax seed, golden for color
2 Tbsp almond flour (or pulp, but use less water if wet)
pinch sea salt

Cream Filling
3/4  cup shredded unsweetened coconut, finely ground
1 teaspoon vanilla extract, or 3 drops Medicine Flower Vanilla Extract
2 teaspoons lemon juice
1 - 3  Tbsp water (as needed to thin)
2 Tbsp honey, maple syrup, (or your favorite liquid sweetener) to taste

Cookie Preparation
Blend nuts and water well. Add remaining ingredients and blend until creamy.

Pour onto non-stick dehydrator sheet and spread with offset spatula - about 1/8" thick.

Dehydrate at 110 degrees F for 4 hours.

Flip onto mesh dehydrator tray and peel off non-stick sheet.  Score into strips, about 1/2 - 3/4 inch wide and then into finger sized rectangles (equal in size). Option: use a small circle cookie cutter and make rounds.

Dehydrate another 8-10 hours, flipping over again, once. ( may be prepared on lowest oven setting, but will not be raw...and will have to watch for timing).

Vanilla Cream Filling Preparation
Process shredded coconut in a spice or coffee grinder until a fine powder.

Transfer to a bowl and add remaining ingredients, adding only enough water to make spreadable.

Assembly
Spread small amount of Cream on each cookie and dehydrate for 1hour.

Press two cookies together, vanilla cream inside and dehydrate 2-3 hours. They should be dry on outside, but still chewy.

Option: No Cream..just plain wafers are delicious. (See square cookies below).


BEWARE: These are addictive!

Lemon and Vanilla, my two most favorite flavors. You can count on me making these as soon as I collect the ingredients.

Come back and let me know how your recipe turns out. They are really good plain too, without the filling...I'm addicted..which is weird because I'm more of a chocolate person..but the nilla flavor is so potent and yummy. I love em!
